SPENCERVILLE, Ohio -- The Spencerville board of education has decided not to seek renewal of a 20-year-old school operating levy, citing the district's healthy financial condition.
At a meeting last week, the board voted to let the 3.4-mill levy expire at the end of the year.
The measure, originally approved by voters in 1981 because of a financial crisis in the district, raises $256,800 a year, Superintendent Joel Hatfield said.
In a resolution, the school board said it would not put the levy up for renewal on the Nov. 6 ballot “as the need for providing emergency funds to the school district no longer exists.”
